General Dentistry Dentists - Norwalk, CT
If you have kids you need a good dentist. Don't let your kids go without regular checkups! Call Teeth Now and we will help you find reputable dentists in the Norwalk, Conn area.
Most dentists recommend that children receive regular checkups (every six months) from the age of three. It's good to start kids early, because it gets them used to the idea of being at the dental office.
Then when something a little scary happens, like getting a cavity filled, they have already established a positive rapport with their care provider. It won't make it completely painless or drama free, but it will make it a lot better.
Early childhood is a difficult time to manage tooth decay, since proper brushing isn't an easy task for a toddler. “Baby teeth” may not be permanent, but staying on top of dental checkups is just as important. Not only can untreated cavities cause toothaches, but they can impact permanent teeth as well. It is also important to have regular checkups to get early diagnosis and treatment of any orthodontic issues your child may have. To find a dental office in the Norwalk, Connecticut area, give Teeth Now a call.
But what about your teeth? Adults need consistent dental care just as much as children. According to studies by the American Academy of Periodontology, gum disease may be linked to other serious health problems such as diabetes, heart disease and Alzheimers. Regular checkups with cleanings help prevent gum disease, and also identify cavities before they turn into painful toothaches. Not only will getting regular checkups keep your smile looking its best, it will set an example for your kids. If your children see you go to the dentist without fear (fake it if you have to), they will get the message that it's not a scary thing.
